    This youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVfRQ0YIDUI&feature=fvw claims that without installing a windows hotfix or updating your Nvidea drivers immediately, the macbook pro will freeze on second boot. Is this true and is it necessary to download these files? I will definitely update my graphics drivers but is it necessary to do this immediately or before installing bootcamp drivers?

    thanks :)

    If you follow the bootcamp instructions you shouldn't have any problems. you should be able to download a guide from apple.com. I would recommend printing it off before you start.

    Why isn't Windows 7 a supported OS in the apple boot camp guide?

    Just use Parallels. You can integrate Windows within Mac OS X. I mean sure its some extra money to throw out with Boot Camp being free and all, but its worth it.
